Often the last thing we want to do is get up and look at Netflix on the couch, get up and clean. After all, the whole point of relaxation is to do the opposite of housework. That said, there’s a new, extremely worthless show about the streaming service that lets you tidy up your stay before every episode even ends. And you like that too!
The new series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, follows organization consultant and author, Marie Kondo, while helping everyday Americans to unlock, reorganize, and find some much needed inner peace in the form of contraction.
Believe us now when we say that Kondo is very eligible for this performance. Her best-selling book from 2011, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, has so far sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. What has made it such a sensation is the KonMari method, a patented organizational technique where participants only have to store possessions and scenery that ‘create joy’.
It may be a simple idea, but it is one that has deep roots in ancient Japanese culture. This blending of old and new traditions, as well as the unique optimism of the Kondo, are the same qualities that have created such a dedicated fan base.
And with that kind of attraction, it’s no wonder that Kondo’s followers can also “delight” in their homes. The writer and the host regularly share fan photos on her Instagram account, as a way to show that her cleanup technique is really replicable. Take a look at what this well-trained student of Kondo did with her fridge …
Yes, we would say that she definitely deserves an A +!
To witness similar organizational masterpieces yourself, watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix. A show that entertains AND inspires us to brush? Yes please!
